I stand by my post. I said he deserves a lot of credit for what happened while he was president and that OBJECTIVE observers will judge his legacy as one of our better presidents. Asking your opinion is like asking a redsox fan what he thinks of the yankees, which is useless!

It just kills liberals like you that Reagan will go down as one of the best.

Picture Bullwinkle Moose looking into his crystal ball...

The best president we never had was cut down before his inevitable inauguration:

RFK.

The All-Seeing Eye of Agamotto has revealed that Bobby would have outshone his older brother Jack, but as fate would have it, once again history took a left turn...
for the worse.

Pure speculation, fortune telling or mystical mumbo jumbo perhaps; perhaps not.

Anyone remember Reagan's response to the 1983 terrorist bombing of US Marine barracks in Lebanon?

If not, I'll remind you..

No US retaliation. Rest of the Marines withdrawn from Lebanon within four months.

Over the next three years, the US engaged in a secret and illegal arms-for-hostages deal with Iran, the primary state backer of the Lebanon terrorists.

And he's remembered as such a hard-ass...

Yep, that was what I was getting at below. The crucial, specific decisions he made vis-a-vis ForPolicy were not good ones, objectively speaking (whether you're a hard liner or not, he screwed up and was inconsistent on Central America and the Mid Eas).
